As advances in modern medicine have enabled individuals to live longer, healthier lives, many people have sought out aesthetic enhancement treatments as a means of preserving a youthfully rejuvenated appearance reflective of their inner vitality.

For the past six years, the most popular non-surgical skin rejuvenation in America has remained Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox), a prescription neurotoxin that can be injected into the muscles of the face in order to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Botox offers skin rejuvenating results for patients with the beginning signs of aging, as well as for patients with more advanced signs of aging and deeper wrinkles. Botox injections take only 20 minutes to perform and safely reduce wrinkles by 80%, giving patients a more youthful, refreshed, facial appearance without requiring any post-treatment downtime.

Repetitive contraction of our facial muscles to make expressions is one of the main causes of dynamic facial wrinkles; however, factors such as the natural aging process, genetics, smoking, and sun exposure can also play a role in the formation of dynamic wrinkles.  Botox injections address and treat the issue of dynamic wrinkle formation by blocking the nerve impulses within the targeted muscle, thereby inhibiting the contraction of the adjacent facial muscles and yielding smoother, youthfully rejuvenated skin.

Although the increasing popularity of Botox has expanded its availability, improper administration of Botox can lead to shiny foreheads, visible ripples, and an unnatural “frozen” look, which is why it is imperative to have your Botox injections administered by a trained practitioner who specializes in this field.  Dr.  Jason A. Shapiro, M.D. makes it a priority to stay up to date with the latest developments in the field of non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures in order to offer his patients the most effective treatments with minimal side effects and long-lasting results. As the Medical Director at Tribeca Medaesthetics, located in beautiful Miami Beach, Florida, Dr. Shapiro and his team of professionally trained medical aestheticians have helped many patients reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and revitalize the condition of their skin with Botox injections. 


Botox injections can be performed to address and correct a number of problematic cosmetic issues, including, but not limited to:

  • Crow’s feet (fine lines around the eyes)
  • Frown lines
  • Eyebrow asymmetry
  • Sagging or creasing of the forehead/brow area
  • Drooping around the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines
  • Upper and lower lip creases
  • Gummy smile
  • Excessive cleft chin or “peach pit” chin
  • Facial scars
  • Horizontal and vertical neck creases
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Wrinkling on the décolleté (chest)

In addition to reducing the appearance of the aforementioned aesthetic issues, Botox injections also offer the benefit of slowing down the aging process by preventing patients from making the facial expressions responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles.


Your Botox treatment will be performed in our office and typically takes no longer than 20 minutes, after which you can resume your normal daily activities. The visible results of your Botox injections will peak approximately one week after the injections are performed, and the wrinkle-reducing effects generally last 3-7 months, although this time frame varies among individuals and can be extended with periodic maintenance injections. Complementary cosmetic skin treatments (ie. chemical peels, microdermabrasion and dermal fillers) can be performed in conjunction with Botox injections to amplify and maximize your skin rejuvenating results.


At Tribeca Medaesthetics, we make it a priority to keep abreast of the latest technological advances in the field of skin rejuvenation treatments, and our skillful physicians employ these cutting edge techniques to ensure safe procedures and beautifully natural-looking results.  We understand how valuable your time is, and will take care to ensure that your Botox treatment fits seamlessly into your schedule and leaves you with a more youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated appearance.

Dr. Shapiro and the Tribeca Medaesthetics staff believe that having well-informed patients is vital to the success of every Botox procedure, and will take the time to thoroughly review all of your Botox options and procedural details.
